Unformatted text preview: variance will be unfavourable (because of assumed lost sales, loss CM, and lost income.). The volume variance is treated as an adjustment to COGS. That is, a favourable volume variance will reduce COGS and an unfavourable variance will increase COGS. The statement presentation is as follows: COGS at standard $ xxx Volume variance xx COGS at actual $ xxx The change is only made to the Absorption format income statement because there is no volume variance in Variable Costing (because volume variances relate only to fixed overhead and fixed overhead is not charged to inventory under Variable Costing.) The volume variance has no effect on details of the reconciliation between the two incomes. However, when there is a denominator level, calculate the volume variance and adjust the COGS amount on the absorption income statement. RF12/05...
